IS YOUR TV WATCHING YOU? Latest TV models have face recognition, can spy on users
[link to www.nbcnews.com]


Samsung’s 2012 top-of-the-line plasmas and LED HDTVs offer new features never before available within a television including a built-in, internally wired HD camera, twin microphones, face tracking and speech recognition. While these features give you unprecedented control over an HDTV, the devices themselves, more similar than ever to a personal computer, may allow hackers or even Samsung to see and hear you and your family, and collect extremely personal data.

While Web cameras and Internet connectivity are not new to HDTVs, their complete integration is, and it's the always connected camera and microphones, combined with the option of third-party apps (not to mention Samsung's own software) gives us cause for concern regarding the privacy of TV buyers and their friends and families.

Scary shit. Does anyone know why a cable box would turn on internally when a person enters the room? I have been logging this activity for 2 months. I'm afraid of coming across as paranoid, so I just ignore it, but it did the same thing to my daughter today.

Guess I am just a weirdo.

your about 80 years too late on that concept...1 pixel can be a 2 way video...when the TV's went from round screens(looking like a big eye) to square screens is when everyone with one began to be watched...
How unfortunate for some rulers when men,women,and children continue to think... Keep repeating the lies loud enough and long enough and just maybe the people will start to believe the lies again and good luck with that...finding your energy open until mars becomes raging aries...

And, no, I don't think it's paranoid. About a year ago, I was turning on my laptop and noticed that my camera (built in webcam) flashes twice after it boots up to the desktop. I always thought that was strange, and so, maybe I'll just be paranoid with ya hf

Probably, but it does make sure nobody's watching from the other end, doesn't it?

I disable the camera and mic under device manager...

I still have tape over them because I still don't trust the software to totally disable them.

Not without a lot of equipment. Maybe it could be done but someone would have to be local to tune into rabbit ears or something since that was before cable or Dish.

Make sure to unplug electricity or use those electric outlets where you can turn off the electricity with a button.

For cellphones don't forget to take out the battery to be really sure it is off. That is if you even need one, do you really need a cellphone?
